i could see it!!!!....

You know when you are pregnant and you have an ultrasound...

or you watch while your wife is having an ultrasound if you happen to be the two guys that read this:)

and the ultrasound tech is identifying 'parts'---"There's the liver/kidney/etc." You are relieved to hear that all of the important parts are developed, but you have no idea if that odd shaped blob is actually the pancreas. You nod your head and pretend like you can actually make out the organs, but they truthfully all look like grey blobs!

Well today I got to scan for the first time!! I was so nervous (because I do not like to be in situations where I am unsure and could make mistakes), but excited to finally get to do the thing I have been working towards for the last year.

I am happy to report that I was actually able to find and recognize the items for today's lab!!

Good to know that the headaches and sleeplessness for the last 12 months haven't been for naught :)
